Hey guys,
It's that time of the year again, and this time I will be rebuilding my TJ07 water cooled build. Currently I have some plans and ideas but some things will be subject to change depending on how my new motherboard fits and the colour scheme that I want to go for. I'm looking to go for a clean black and nickel look, but at the same time this has been done many times so I am currently deciding on how to make my build stand out from the rest. Feel free to brain storm with me, and I appreciate any input and feedback.
Current parts:
TJ07
I5 4670k @ 4.4ghz
GA-Z87X-OC
EVGA GTX 770 SC
Kingston hyperX beast 8gb
Silverstone 850w sleeved
120gb SSD
1tb HDD
EK supremacy copper
EK 770 full cover acetal/ copper
EK XT 480mm rad
Alphacool 200mm res
Alphacool ST30 360mm rad
XSPC D5 vario with Alphacool top
Primochill ghost hardline compression fittings
Monsoon compression fittings
Primochill acrylic tube
XSPC FLEX orange
7x Scythe GT1450 fans
2x arctic 80mm fans

New parts:
ASUS Z97 sabertooth MK1
Aquaero 5 LT
EK HD fittings
EK acrylic tube 10/12mm
EK/ Bitspower compression fittings
EK PE 480 rad
7x Scythe GT1850
Custom acrylic motherboard tray and 5.25" bay cover
Hopefully, custom acrylic mid-plate with water channels

Current state:

Small update, but lots of work:
Stripped and cleaned the build, really happy with EK and Mayhems after around 9 months of use my blocks were as clean as they went in, also my alphacool rad which i admittedly didn't flush to the full extent caused no problems ( possibly just a good batch ).
Took out my CPU and placed it in the new motherboard, which I also test mounted to confirm that it fit.
Cut at the top rad cut-out a little more to make the rad fit more flush to the rad grill.
Changed the placement of my basement rad stands, and improved the mounting. Before I had accidentally drill to where the case feet where and had them just sitting lose under the case, this time I drilled and tapped M4 thread instead of using nuts and bolts.
Cut a piece of acrylic for the front 5.25" bays, just need to glue some more pieces to it to be able to mount it, then paint it.
Polished my supremacy block top and res. The block top isn't fully finished as I didn't have any 2000 grit, only got up to 1200, but it's coming along nicely.
Here are some pics of what I have so far:

Nice work man. Might I suggest some nail polish remover to get rid of those logos on the case.

Have you tried that? I heard that removing the Silverstone logo on the TJ07 is very difficult.

Yea I was planning on doing that, and will probably try it today. Does it usually take a bit of force, and how much do you recommend to use? Don't want to be removing any black paint tongue.gif

Nope, just use a decent nail polish remover and it comes off easy as.
